Recently I turned on my laptop and realized my taskbar changed by XP blue to gray with no special icons. The taskbar looks like a boring version of Windows 98. I tried everything and nothing's working. It was normal yesterday.

I'm using Trend Micro Internet Security. I tried to click on the Trend icon, but nothing will pop up.

What can I do to make Windows XP return to normal? Do I have to go to the computer repair shop to see what's happening?

Probably not.

Try a System Restore back to a point before the problem started.

Even if that restores things to "normal," I'd suggest running MBAM as per the linky below:

Tried that. Never had anything restored before it happened, because I didn't know much about System Restore.

Try running the scans in the linky I posted and copy&paste the requested scanlogs for us and we'll have a look.

Go through each and every one of those downloads?

The MBAM and DDS steps ought to suffice at the moment - We'll see what they have to show us before going further.

It's currently scanning at the moment. So once that's taken care of, I copy and paste right on here or message you the details?

Well . . . Nothing jumps out at me, though the DDS is missing a lot of info.

Let's try the easy way:

Click START > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
Look for the Themes service and make sure the Status is Started and the Startup Type is Automatic.

Then, RightClick the Desktop and select Properties > Themes and make sure it is set to Windows XP.

If it is not there, choose Browse and navigate to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Luna.theme and set this as the theme.

Let me know how that shakes out. I'll be back Friday evening EST.

I was able to revert the taskbar to its original self, but the icons are still missing. Now where can I locate the Desktop and Browse?

In regards to audio, where do I go for that?
